her the citation that night, here's chief mcgraw with an explanation. >> the officer who made the traffic stop basically the only way you can charge for speeding, you either have to pace an individual and to have that, to do that, you have to have a certified celebrated speedo meter, which he didn't have and he didn't have the time or the space to do the pacing and didn't have the radar gun. he didn't have the proper cause to charge for speed. wreckless -- and taking that into consideration and that is why she was issued the citation today. >> all right, we did contact karen tolls' lawyer. they said because this matter involves a pending traffic charge, we believe it would be inappropriate to comment publicly on this matter at this time. the chief said the officer was in -- is in the clear and did an outstanding job. at this point, there is no evidence that the councilwoman did anything to try to get out of this ticket.

5:06 pm
tonight. and he's up by 20 points and again, the big contests into tonight, ohio and tennessee, key to keep an eye on and with more than 400 delegates up for grabs, effectively, he could begin to shut the race down and put himself out of reach of the competition and they could decide to keep on running, laura. technically, though, romney could be up to an insurmountable lead starting tonight. >> and mitt romney can't lock up the nomination tonight, obviously, not enough delegates up for grabs and we want to tell you, too, this is a live picture of video here of mitt romney and he just voted. where is he today? >> he was speaking to the israel pact and there are 10 states up for grabs, you know, and we live in this age now, the satellite transigs and they have been able to campaign all over the country and go into the statesy that up for grabs
